The converted loft is located in the Dietze Building, a manufacturing building that was home to various companies over the years being built around 1890 by Lewis H. Watson. In 1927 a fire damaged the building, and it was rebuilt by Dietze Realty Corporation and architect Charles F. Ackerman. In 1982, the building was converted by two NJIT architecture professors into live/work units. The renovated lofts retain much of the look and feel of their manufacturing days, giving the loft its distinct and unique character. The Dietze Building became a Historic Landmark of Newark in 2016.
